It was the height of 1970s fashion, the ballerina ring: so-called because the undulating outer row of baguette diamonds reminded owners of the ruffled skirt of a tutu.
This piece is in platinum (as stamped), and is set with 26 tapered baguette and 12 round brilliant cut diamonds weighing around 1.90 carats total, having approximate average quality of G-H color and VS clarity (three round diamonds are chipped). These surround the marquise brilliant cut center diamond, at about 0.68 carat, with F color and SI2 clarity. It measures about 7/8" north to south and 5/16" across, with 3/8" rise from the finger. It is in good vintage condition.
The signature "RING-DANT" was for a Florida company that invented a way to give the owner the option to wear the top of the ring installed on its shank, or swing the locking mechanism out 180 degrees, which had a loop so that it could be worn as a pendant. This mechanism has been soldered shut, but could be restored to functionality. As is, it is the quintessential 1970s dinner ring.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Diamonds in platinum, Size: Finger size 6 1/4 (can be sized) / top of ring is 21.5 x 15 x 9 mm.
